Molded


Jeremiah 18:2-6
“Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will let you hear my words.” So I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was working at his wheel. And the vessel he was making of clay was spoiled in the potter’s hand, and he reworked it into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to do. Then the word of the Lord came to me: “O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter has done? declares the Lord. Behold, like the clay in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand, O house of Israel.

I love the analogy that we see in this scripture. I don’t know about you but sometimes I look at my life and it looks ‘spoiled.’ When I look at the talents and abilities that I have there is an overwhelming sense of inadequacy.  

When I look at the mistakes and the wrong decisions that I have made in life I can feel pretty down. 

But I am thankful that I have a God that takes me in His hands and reworks me into the man that he wants me to be. I’m thankful that if I allow God to mold me; He will do so. 

Maybe you have gotten off track a little bit… Let God mold you today; open your heart to be transformed by the Power of Jesus Christ.
